Just to clarify: It is keeping the four folders it should, with correct content. The problem is that it is keeping another 3 without the filemaker files, 3 folders that should have been deleted.
It could be, and since it is FileMaker 12 and the backups are OK it is not a crucial problem.
Two comments though:
- The problem just started some months ago.
- And it is not leaving an unlimited number of extra folders behind, only 3 ...
Strange, interesting, isn't it?
If the only advice is: Move to 14, then it is what we are telling our customer anyhow.
Yeah, but i didn't got more information about this issue from FMI than you can see in theses postings and the only solution was to delete folders manually; then, the issue disappeared when i updated to FMS 13.
Conclusion: As Fred write and unless somebody else can add more information ... it is a bug in FMS12 and it is fixed in FileMaker Server 13 and onwards.
